And now in the 40th minute, he's dropped the subtle sarcasm and just said "going to Boston United when he was there was one of my most unpleasant experiences in football"

Ha and there he goes again! (I'm just getting around to watching the tape of the game now) Robson just said that normally non-league fans all over the country would root for the little guy but he doesn't think its the case with Crawley "not just because of the money, but because of their behavior." This guy is great.

They mentioned Boston United early in the US broadcast, and also said something about Evans getting a 10-game suspension but nothing further than that. Stewart Robson basically trashed him though, he was pretty subtle but made it clear he can't stand him. Whoever was announcing tried to say Evans had "passion" and Robson said something like "you can look at it as a matter of passion or discipline, I choose the second"

Anyone get any video of the winning goal today?

Will all of them do?

Boston United v Guiseley Match Highlights

I've been working on getting the quality settings right this afternoon.  Finally got it back in widescreen. ;D

I find 480p is the best way to watch it.

Thanks a lot Patrick! Quality is pretty good on this one as well

I think we'll win this group, even without Charlie Davies.  :P

Uniforms look sharp

A quick pic.

2-0 by the way Davidson just scored again.

Ha, looks like Norwich are trying to match Spalding in their League 1 opener, they're down something like 7-1 now

Obviously, I've never seen Butcher, but since when do goalkeepers peak at age 18? I thought nowadays many of them were peaking at like 32.

Last time I looked the USA was the biggest source of internet fraud, so not dealing with them looks a safe option for BUFC to me!

Whoa, c'mon now. There's no way Evans hasn't committed more internet fraud than us, unless he doesn't know how to use a computer.

I wouldn't be too worried about missing Real Madrid Hugo, I looked into going since I'll be starting a new job in Pennsylvania the week before, but that was until I saw the prices! It's not worth close to 100 bucks to see Ronaldo prance around from the upper decks, there's a better view on television anyway.

I just got back from the Gold Cup games- Grenada got thrashed by Honduras and ended the tournament 0-3 with no goals scored (although Shalrie Joseph was injured). After the USA game, I put on my Boston gear and sat behind the Grenada bench- Tommy saw me at halftime and laughed and came over and said hello but that was it, I didn't really get to talk to him at all.

Interestingly, I showed my Boston shirt to some fans beforehand and some of the people I see around at matches said they had bought scarves (and in one case a coffee mug) on Ebay and wanted shirts but hadn't been able to find one yet. It's too bad the Official Site won't ship out of the UK because several people today said they had checked there hoping to buy one. In fact, the OS wouldn't even ship to me when I had a UK address at university because my debit card wasn't linked to that address. I had that god-awful white "Downtown" jersey for a bit, although a while back I was able to get a sweet yellow-and-black striped one. Took a lot of Ebay searching though.

I wonder if that is something the club will ever change, and if there is a tangible reason for it (maybe out of country monetary transactions are unreliable?). You can always charge extra shipping for overseas. There aren't all that many hardcore soccer fans over here, but from my interactions with them I get the impression that most of the real big fans in the Boston area are at least aware of BUFC, and while none seem to have followed it like I have, many at least are interested that there is a Boston team in England- and I've seen one or two other United shirts here over the years. Anyway, I bet if they ever shipped to the USA they would get more than a few orders for shirts and scarves from this area. I know I would occasionally buy a match DVD just for a chance to see the current team. I can understand not shipping to sketchy places, but in this day and age a transaction from the USA to England must be something that can be handled easily and safely, right?

Yeah I am, going to GWU in Washington DC.

I wonder how many other Unibond premier clubs have ever been mentioned live on american tv? Maybe one should take on the Boston Goals feature?!?

How do you like it there so far? You hear Real Madrid is playing there on August 9th?

Yeah, I thought Grenada actually did well, they were pretty organized and didn't give us too many chances. Even though it was our C team, they were never going to have a chance with the players they had. I heard Boston mentioned early in the second half, when they said it was the last place he had coached at- I don't think they elaborated past that.

Hugo, did you say you are going to school in the US?
